Our annual visit to the wildlife paradise of the Isle of Mull off the west coast of Scotland is going very well indeed!

We drove up, from North Wales, on Saturday picking up Yvonne, then Brian, then Peter and Margret, we were to meet Tony and Eva on the island. The journey up went very smoothly seeing us in Oban in time for lunch and some birding before the ferry over to Mull at 4pm. We enjoyed amazing views of three White-tailed Eagles and great looks at Black Guillemots. The ferry was on time and sea calm, we saw a few birds on the crossing, Great northern Divers, more Black Guillemots, Common Guillemots, Razorbills and Kittiwakes. We settled into our lovely hotel, all rooms with wonderful sea-views and great food!

On Sunday we woke to hear a Song Thrush singing right outside our room, lovely, not so lovely when we opened the curtains, torrential rain and high winds. Undeterred we headed out for pre-breakfast birding and were soon watching Ringed Plover, Turnstone, Curlew and Great northern Diver along with common seals. Heavy showers had us jumping back into the minibus to shelter and then out again as the rain stopped. Then, as we had hoped two huge White-tailed Eagles flew in and landed in the wind-blown trees, amazing to watch these massive raptors building their nest and pretty close allowing brilliant views. A superb breakfast went down very well indeed, pre-breakfast eagle watching gives you an appetite! The day was spent tour the minor roads of the island, hiding from lashing rain, jumping out when the weather allowed to enjoy wonderful birds and wildlife. We had super views of two otters, so lucky to see two of these animals on our very first day! We had amazing luck with eagles to, we enjoyed a total of nine White-tailed Eagles and two Golden Eagles! So many Great northern Divers we lost count, breeding plumages Slavonian Grebe, two Hen Harriers and more. What a start to our trip.
